Pauliina Pohjonen - BSc, MA, (MBACP).
My name is Pauliina. I am a British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy (BACP) registered Counsellor & Psychotherapist working in private practice in South West London.
Therapy is for anyone going through difficult times, whether this is due to problems in relationships, stresses at work, death of someone close to you, or struggles with health or perhaps having feelings of sadness and anxiety and not really knowing why this might be.
Therapy offers you a space to talk about your difficulties without judgement.Together we can identify the issues that have become problematic for you and think about how they are impacting your life and well-being. We can consider how you currently cope, working through what is and what might not be so helpful. We will explore your strengths and new ways of doing things, enabling you to cope effectively.
In my view, therapy is an intensely collaborative process. Whilst I bring my training, expertise and experience to the process, I am of the firm conviction that you are the expert on you. You do know what is right for you and you do, invariably, know what you need to do in order to achieve your goals. Only you know what things really feel like inside of yourself, what kinds of thoughts you think and what you wish for and desire. I make effective use of your internal processes by combining them with my experience.
